On October 7, we are waiting for a meeting of two giants of the international level, because Portugal is hosting Spain, and we have prepared a forecast for this confrontation. Will the teams be on top? – read below.
Fernando Santos’ wards are doing great in the League of Nations, as they lead group 3 together with France, although the rivals gathered are really worthy, which are only Croatia or Sweden, so no one will let you relax.
The Portuguese national team has already played two confident fights and scored six points, but before the meeting with the French, they will hold, so to speak, a rehearsal in the confrontation with Spain. Without a doubt, a really interesting sight awaits us.
The head coach does not particularly deviate from the strategy and relies on the same proven performers, although recently the Portuguese mentor began to carefully introduce the youth. For example, João Felix has only recently become a base player, but with his actions, the Atlético Madrid midfielder deserves it.
Of course, Cristiano Ronaldo is expected to come out, who has been a leader and a real captain for a long time, and without whom it is difficult to imagine the Portuguese national team now.
The Red Fury is painlessly going through the rejuvenation of the squad, which is good news, because the Spanish national team has always had enough talent. Luis Enrique relies on young performers, which has already yielded results.
The Spaniards held two meetings within the League of Nations. We played a draw with Germany (1: 1), however, if it had not been for the goal of Jose-Luis Gaia in the 96th minute, they could have been left with nothing. In the second round, the team performed in a completely different way – they added in the attack, which the Ukrainian team felt on itself (4: 0).
This meeting can be called the finest hour of Ansu Fati, who, at the age of 17, simply tore apart the opponent’s defensive redoubts and scored a double. In a word, the Spanish football federation may not worry about the future, especially since there are also Eric Garcia and Ferran Torres.
As for the fight against Portugal, the mood will be appropriate, and we hope for an interesting football.
Portugal have won twice in their last five personal matches.
In the five previous matches, which the teams had between themselves, they played twice for total under 2.5 goals.
The winning streak of Fernando Santos’ charges lasts four matches.
The Red Fury hasn’t lost in 13 games.
In the last ten games the Portuguese have conceded six goals.

First of all, it is striking that the teams love to attack and know how to do it, especially since the roster of the national teams of Spain and Portugal is overflowing with stars of the international level, but do not forget that the opponents also defend well.
In the last matches the Portuguese practically did not concede, which can be said about the defense of the “red fury”, and if we take into account the fact that the match will take place in Lisbon, then one can hardly hope for a hail of goals. In short, we offer a bet on the total less .
